The Red Rooster Festival returns to a new venue

The beautiful grounds of Euston Hall, Suffolk will be the location for the new Red Rooster festival, which takes place on Saturday 7th June, partnering with the long-established Rural Pastimes event on Sunday 8th June. How versatile – the offer of two different festival experiences packed into one weekend! 

Embracing the sounds and lifestyle of the American Deep South, Red Rooster aims to become the premier boutique festival for Rhythm and Blues, Americana, Soul, Roots and Country music.

This year the hooch will flow to the sounds of our friends:

The Jim Jones Revue

Big Boy Bloater, Miraculous Mule,

 CC Smugglers, Scoundrels, Danni Nicholls, Pearl TN

 and a host of good ol’ boys and girls.

There ain't no cooking in the world like the cooking in the South and the food at Red Rooster is as Southern as a Mississippi magnolia tree. We love a good ol’ rack of ribs soaked in Bourbon, spinning our girls round dancing, listening to a man sing his heart out on a guitar made out of an old cigar box. 

It’s a long way from Suffolk to enjoy the sounds and smells of the Deep South, so we thought, why not, let’s try and recreate it in the heart of the Suffolk countryside. 

It’s early days, but we hope you will join us at the campfire by the swamp and grow with us on our little adventure.

And, having filled your cowboy boots with fantastic music on the Saturday, you can stroll off to camp beneath the stars, and, next day fresh as a daisy, awaken to the wonderful world of Rural Pastimes and all the fun of a country fair weekend.

Rural Pastimes

The East of England’s leading countryside family event, Euston Rural Pastimes returns for its 23rd year to the picturesque surroundings of Euston Park by the kind permission of Duke Harry Grafton. 2014 will be the event’s biggest year to date with thousands expected to visit and enjoy the huge number of attractions on offer and help raise money for good causes in the process.

This year’s’ event features The Knights of the Damned jousting display, the death defying air displays of Wildcat Aeronautics, two main rings that will delight animal lovers with The Heavy Horse Show, sheepdog trials, terrier racing, a petting area and more. Motor enthusiasts will find hours of fun at the vintage and classic car display featuring over 300 pristine cars from years gone by alongside motorcycles, tractors and engines. The prestigious flower festival also returns along with Morris Dancers and more live music. The idyllic surroundings of Euston Hall will also feature acres of craft and food stalls.
